Zsh on Solaris 2.6


I have downloaded the Zsh shell that I have founded on your website
the file I have donwloaded is :

-rw-r--r--   1 m091712  staff     976037 Dec 26 13:57 zsh-3.1.9g-pkg.tgz

I have done a pkgadd -d . as root and the installation was fine.

I am running a Solaris 2.6 on E450 Sun microsystems computer.

# pkginfo -l zsh
   PKGINST:  zsh
      NAME:  The Z shell
  CATEGORY:  utility
      ARCH:  sparc
   VERSION:  3.1.9g
   BASEDIR:  /usr/local
    VENDOR:  zsh.org
    PSTAMP:  07thJul00
  INSTDATE:  Dec 26 2001 14:18
     EMAIL:  frbrgeorge@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    STATUS:  completely installed
     FILES:    398 installed pathnames
                 4 shared pathnames
                 1 linked files
                12 directories
                42 executables
              5715 blocks used (approx)

Unfortunately, when i try to run that shell, i obtain the following error.

# /usr/local/bin/zsh
ld.so.1: /usr/local/bin/zsh: fatal: libcurses.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory

There is no Readme file and i have'nt see anything on your website like bugs reports in the ZSH FAQ or on the website : http://www.zsh.org


Futher more, I have found the library libcurses.so.1located in the directory /usr/xpg4/lib

# cd /usr

# find . -name libcurses.so.1

So i have added this directory to my LD_LIBARY_PATH

m091712@qvgweb2 pts/7 /export/home/m091712% echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

and then I obtain this following error:

m091712@qvgweb2 pts/7 /export/home/m091712% zsh
Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

Do you have some explanation, or is the package zsh-3.1.9g-pkg.tgz,  the right one to install ZSH Shell on a Sun computer under Solaris 2.6 ?

Thanks a lot.
